Our AST says when a tenant serves notice to move out, the notice date is 1 month from rent date
The rent date in this case is 5th of the month
We are beyond the minimum term and are rolling forward month by month.
Making the date as per the AST 4th of May as he has just served notice on the 23rd of March
He has requested to make the termination date 23rd April. (he is moving to a larger home)
We would like to accept as we have another tenant who would like to move in on 24th April.
All would sound well under this arrangement
Except the current tenants new home has fallen through. (he has a habit of putting on low offers for apartments and then loosing the deal to other interested parties)
I am worried that he will not agree an AST in time with another apartment
My questions is
If we accept the 23rd April as move out date as he has requested (so both parties are in agreement)
Does he have any right to change the move out date to 4th of May as thats the notice period specified on the AST.
I dont want to commit to new tenant and then risk leaving him homeless
